Oregon's 2006 Golden Pioneer award winner Jeanne Marie Moore has been 
fighting for equal rights and opportunities for Americans with 
disabilities for decades. From starting a disability resource center at 
the University of Denver in the '70s and ensuring that California state 
exams were offered in accessible formats, to her work with the Women's 
Braille Press and her efforts to make the election process accessible to 
all voters, she offers insights into the struggle for equality. A 
clinical therapist, musician and avid advocate for the use of Braille, 
her triumphs in the face of personal difficulties, as a blind child 
growing up in an abusive environment, are an inspiration for anyone.
